Donate to Children in Ghana
When you donate to children in Ghana, you are helping to meet the needs of over 52,000 children in the Compassion program. In Ghana, approximately 29 percent of the population lives on less than $1.25 a day. Rural communities in Ghana often lack basic needs such as water, medical care and education. For household water needs, most people rely on dirty ponds, rivers and uncovered hand-dug wells. As a result, they are exposed to illnesses such as parasites, cholera and diarrhea. Many children don’t attend school in rural areas. Some parents earn so little that they simply can’t afford to send their children to school, while others are ignorant about the benefits of education. Many children are left to grow up by themselves and so preventable illnesses, teenage pregnancies, rape and juvenile delinquency are common. When you donate to children in Ghana, you help turn these poverty statistics upside down.
Child development centers in Ghana in rural communities provide registered children with a place to learn, grow and study. Sponsorship allows staff to provide Bible teaching, medical exams, health and hygiene instruction, educational tours and classes, social events, tutoring, and life-skills and vocational training. Centers also offer opportunities for involvement for the parents or guardians of sponsored children. These children also spend time writing to and praying for their sponsors.
In partnership with local churches and generous people who donate to children in Ghana, Compassion is bringing help and hope to rural Ghana’s children in need, providing regular nutritious meals and snacks, medical check-ups and care, educational help, and hope for the future. Parents also receive training in income-generating skills.
